The GUBA foundation was established whilst working on the GUBA awards. Let’s just say there’s plenty more blossoms to come from this wonderful lady.

Whilst on her journey she realised that alongside the awards for recognition and celebrations , deep within the Ghanaian community lies unanswered questions regarding the needs of the people , needs important to  us all such as: :  disability, education, poverty and health.

Autism

Not just pretty faces…

Ghana’s Top female movie stars look for more than just film-making!

 

The two most talked about actresses in Africa have starred in movies for years, and they keep getting better and better. But there seems to be a trend setting – they want more than just the acting and drama.

It is reported Jackie Appiah is busily working on her single in one of the reigning recording studios in the capital which will be released on the music market very soon. Similarly Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim also ventures into music and signs with Nigerian based music groups called Kentro World.

So this change with our Ghanaian actresses, well let’s not say change but our women seem more empowered, determined and feel they can do anything however high or unreachable.

Young Ghanaians girls should see this as a message, no matter what you want to do where you want to go you can achieve it.

Development in Ghana

Tamale International Airport to cost US$174 million

 

The need for another International Airport in Ghana to complement that of the Kotoka International Airport, Accra is long overdue. This is because of the high investment of the country’s airspace. With the drilling of oil in commercial quantities and increase in the economy, more foreign direct investments are increasing on a daily basis.

In addition, Ghanaian pilgrims to Mecca who are mostly from the Northern regions always experience such terrible journeys  as every year as a majority of them do not have relatives in Accra and are have no choice but  to sleep at the airport for weeks before they actually departure . Luckily a Hajj Village has been built near the El-Wak Sports Stadium, where they are accommodated and fed before boarding on this Holy Pilgrimage.

It is stated that, Ghana’s flying and air travel industry stand out as one of the fastest developing and most competitive in the sub-region underscored by the fact that the number of commercial and cargo carriers plying in and out of Ghana has almost doubled from 15 in 2000 to 30 in 2010.

The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) made it a campaign promise prior to the 2008 elections that, when voted into power they would build a second International Airport in Tamale to transform the savanna regions of Ghana with the view of bridging the development gap between the North and South of the country.

During a visit to Brazil by Vice President John Mahama, he appealed to the Government of Brazil to help attain this noble course. This request was agreed and the Brazilian Infrastructure Development Company, Queiroz Galvao, is prepared for the construction of the airport which is to be financed by Brazil’s national EXIM bank, BNDES.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has since been signed by Queiroz Galvao with the Ministry of Transport, and completed the necessary designs and phasing for the works.

Vice President Mahama explained that the project will start with the expansion of the runway to accommodate large body Aircrafts and also the construction of an international standard terminal building. The next phase will be the provision of ancillary services including hangers, maintenance area, catering and ground handling. The last phase will be the construction of a cargo village targeting fresh fruit farmers that are setting up camp in the Savanna regions and the various processing companies being set up in the area.

The project according to him is estimated to cost US$174 million.

A strong partnership…

STRCCI teams up with its counterpart in Trinidad!!

 

The Sekondi-Takoradi Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry, also known as (STRCCI) is establishing links with the Energy Chamber of Commerce of Trinidad and Tabago to enable it assist its members to take advantage of the Oil and Gas Local Content Bill when it is passed into law.

Mr. Ato Van-Ess, Chairman of the STRCCI stated this at the chamber’s third bi-monthly meeting at Takoradi on Thursday.

He said the link would allow the STRCCI to benefit from the experience of the Energy Chamber of Commerce of Trinidad and Tobago in the energy sector.

Mr. Van-Ess said the STRCCI is thinking seriously about the establishment of an enterprise development centre to equip and prepare its members with skills to take advantage of business opportunities in the oil and gas industry.

He claimed there was also the need for a Skills Development Centre to train manpower for the energy sector.

Mr. Van-Ess advised members to involve the chamber in negotiations with investors in order to protect and safeguard them from fraudsters.

Mr. Cadmond Dadzie, Treasurer of the STRCCI, appealed for the speedy passage of the Local Content Bill into law, adding that it was essential that the bill is passed into law so that institutions that would be mandated to implement the law could do so.

I have to say I’m loving the partnership, working together and movement towards a better and brighter future of Ghana as well as Africa as a whole continent.

Let us move forward YENKO!!

EL- ‘On a Long Ting’

 

For those of you who know me, its no secret I’m a big fan of EL. EL draws the line with his brand new tune titled ‘On A Long Tin’.

The tune is basically an advice to the pretty ladies who play hard to get. E.L dedicated the song to all the long long girls saying:

“this song right here goes out to all the long girls out there, Keep doing your long thing while the rest of your friends get engaged and married and sh%t…. have kids.”

I definitely know all the Guys and Girls out there, will love this tune, because it will relate to them in some way. It definitely   clicked with me when I first heard it.

Going to Ghana soon…?

Places you MUST be when In GH!

 

So I spent my Easter in Ghana. This is also apparently said to be called “SIKA FUO HOLIDAYS” and yes, I did not hesitate to explore every corner, every place and every village.

I think when everyone goes back to the motherland and the time comes to going out, they don’t even know where to start or always end up missing out on some great places.

So I thought why not make things much easier and list my recommendations on the places to be in GH!

Kwahu

This is a beautiful mountainous place, located in the eastern region of Ghana. The best time to be in Kwahu is during Easter, because of the festivals, loud music, paragliding, endless partying and enjoyments.

Kokodo Restaurant

This is a guesthouse, however also part of their guesthouse is a fabulous restaurant. I have to say the atmosphere was so chilled, relaxed, super quiet and just out of this world. If you live in the Cape Coast area, or you’re down there for a visit, do check this place out and see for yourself.

Bojo Beach

Bojo Beach is one of the most beautiful and cleanest beaches in Ghana. It has features that no other beach in Ghana or the world can contest with. One thing I love about the beach is that when you arrive at the entrance you assume straight away that you’re there, but a simple canoe or boat will carry you across from the land to the shores, and BOOM the beauty lies in front of you.

Frankie’s

This is a hotel and restaurant and there’s one located in Osu and another located in Accra Mall. If you’re an ice- cream lover then I’m sure the ice cream parlour will simply blow you away. They have ice creams available in different varieties, flavours, colours, textures and smells. Just make sure you experience the delight for yourselves, but make this venue a Mighty Must.

Cape Coast and Elmina Castle

People never quite get the chance to visit our historic sites in Ghana. But trust me if you do, visit any of these castles and that will surely make your holiday worthwhile. When you arrive, there is a warm welcome from the guides and local sellers who welcome you to Cape Coast.

The tour guides are more than happy to assist you and give you information and to equip you with knowledge about the history, war, slavery and roots.

KFC

Yep KFC has finally hit Ghana, though local foods like ampesie, fufu and banku are the best. Sometimes you may feel like eating something a bit more western.

There are currently two KFC branches in Ghana – one is located in the industrial area and the other in Osu.

I have to say when I went there, I loved it! The food is much better and tastier than the UK KFC, but hey! Go and experience and see whether I’m right or wrong.

Make sure you write these down in your diary’s…

Edem is back again!!!

EDEM “Over again” Track Hits the Airwaves IN Ghana!!

 

EDEM’S latest single receives Massive Hype in GH..

Edem is known for his popular  hits such as: ‘U Dey Craze’, ‘Bra Fremi Fremi’, ‘Nyornuviade’, ‘Give It Up’ and many more. Edem has done massive collaborations with other Ghanaian acts such as Ghana’s pride Samini, the tongue-twisting Sarkodie, the ‘mad’ artist Kwaw Kesse and many more.

However his fresh new track ‘Over Again’ is receiving massive hype everywhere in Ghana – Tema, Takoradi, Kwahu, Accra. This tune was played and played, especially during the Easter festivities. There have been rumours that the official video for this song is yet to be shot again due to the quality, however that is yet to be confirmed.

The rapper uses pidgin dialect in the song which gives it that fierce sound, making it easy to relate to. I love the fact that Edem does all his music in the local Ewe language and he is the most notable rapper in the dialect at the moment. Yess! “ The most notable rapper”

Check it GUYS
